Whether it’s a librarian-led class, or a 200 person networking event, there’s no doubt programming is an essential component of librarianship. So, where was the event planning class in library school? In this session, you will learn how to tap into your skills as educators, researchers, customer service mavens, and organizational wizards to embrace and excel at programming. We will cover outreach, community needs, and development, so that you can walk away feeling more confident in your ability to provide high-quality and relevant programs to your library’s community- a belated Event Planning 101.
